Wed. Word - Aug. 17

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.

-- Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Ever feel overwhelmed by how messed up the world is? You’re not the only one! The prophet Jeremiah ministered during some of the darkest times in scripture. Leading up to the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of Solomon’s temple (c. 626 to 587 BC), he confronted idolatry and called the people to proper devotion. His courageous and creative ministry remains a model for those seeking to enact God’s life-giving care.

 

Perhaps Jeremiah’s experience will help us face the social upheaval and corruption of our own day without losing heart. For the next nine weeks, we will explore the life and ministry of Jeremiah through a series we’re calling “Faithfulness in Hard Times.” We begin this week by reading Jeremiah 1:4-10 and 4:1-10.

 

See you on Sunday,

Sarah
